“Control of thinner” for the successor of the 650S McLaren

McLaren Variable Drift Control

The Super Series of McLaren expected a new generation of cars that will soon begin to reveal with the successor to the McLaren 650S. The successor will be officially launched during the month of March on the occasion of the Geneva Auto Show. As in all relief, even more so if we are talking about Supercars, it is expected the next generation to receive higher doses of technology to improve the performance, efficiency, and fun behind the wheel of the new car Woking.

The successor of the 650S McLaren will be the car that we see in the header with a full camouflage. The chosen image, demonstrating that we we have a powerful rear-drive car, is no coincidence. And it is that, in addition to its huge Cavalry sent to the rear, the new generation will incorporate a chassis called “Proactive Chassis Control II” control, which in turn will include a feature called “Variable Drift Control“. Yes, an electronic system to facilitate the control of the thinner.

Ford Focus RS was the first known model that decided to incorporate a ‘Drift mode‘ between their modes of driving. The compact Ford designers was discovered almost by mistake, to detect a malfunction in the electronic management, which gave them the idea of sharing power in a way that would facilitate the thinner. But the Focus RS is not the only model that has dared, and is that even Mercedes has talked about something similar in the E63 AMG.

But the Proactive Chassis Control II is much more than a facility at the time of search and control a skidding. This second generation allows the driver to choose between 3 different modes of driving such as Comfort, Sport and Track. To improve the predecessor version this chassis takes information from more sensors, monitoring and adapting the response of the car depending on each circumstance.

We will also have Active aerodynamics, which double the efficiency in this regard concerning the 650S, and a redesign of the cooling of the drive, which improves by 15% according to the own brand of Woking. An important detail is that this British supercar will have a weight less than the 1,300 kilos, which says a lot of the use of lightweight materials, carbon fiber and the monocoque chassis.
